President-Elect Biden!!!. Well, I can stop holding my breathe after Biden pulled out a win for democracy. I am truly thankfully that a resounding majority of the American populous decided that decency, honor, truth, and the rule of law were more important than demagoguery, corruption and sociopathic narcissism from a crime family that operated the U.S. for the past four years. I am still markedly disturbed that almost 1/2 of the country voted for that sack of shit masquerading as a human, but hopefully once the stench is removed from the people’s house we can all move forward, find common ground, and operate in the best version of a democratic society. So, to those who voted for Biden – Thank You. For those Republicans who repudiated the former president’s message of hate and lawlessness a big Thank You is also in order.
Given how close the race was in a number of states, it is important to note the importance of every single vote. Every vote counted is a vote for democracy. When every vote is tallied, I am confident that the margins in battleground states will be larger for Biden. This election was a mandate for a different type of presidency. The country is still clearly divided on policy but with a stable individual as president I am hopeful bi-partisanship will be the form of governance. That is, with a unity message from President-Elect Biden, we can now, together, begin to truly confront the issues that are out-of-control in America, namely, the COVID-19 pandemic, systemic bias and racism in our government and society as a whole, and the unemployment crisis affecting our nation as a consequence of COVID-19 and a republican senate that truly did not give a shit about people. Hopefully cooperation is the order of the day as that is what it is going to take to end each of these inter-related emergent threats that easily could return us to chaos.
